Her brothers refuse to accept her lifestyle; insults and threats continue to escalate. Finally, the young woman reports her oldest brother to the police. She no longer feels safe at home, so she takes her child and moves in with a female friend. At the same time, the family is trying to find a wife for her brother, her future killer. They manage to discipline the young Turkish woman Melek, played by Evin, into becoming a strict, devout Muslim in the space of a few weeks. She is part of their plan, intended to take in and care for the little boy after Hatun is dead. And then the murder is committed.
Based on the life of Hatun "Aynur" Sürücü, who was murdered in 2005. See more »
This movie made me so angry!
It is heartbreaking when you see how this woman tries to get into her own life and the patriarchal family destroys everything.
Great acting and cinematography feel like you are part of the story. A must watch.
